The Level I Assessment is conducted at age 12, and is updated annually.
The Level I assessment does not require any specialized testing or vocational evaluation instruments, but rather takes a look at the student from a vocational perspective. A trained vocational evaluator, a special education teacher or a guidance counselor knowledgeable of the world of work and the functional implications of disabilities should be assigned by the local school district to collect the Level I assessment data. That individual should gather and analyze existing information: e.g., interview student, parent/guardian, and teachers; review special education eligibility data; and review cumulative records. Assessments could include a review of student aptitudes, achievements, interests, learning styles, behaviors, and occupational exploration activities. The informal student interview might consider vocational interest, interpersonal relationship skills, and adaptive behavior.
At least two Transition Assessments MUST be included in the Evaluation section of the IEP and should be updated annually. Description of the assessment results may be included in the assessment section or in the PLEPS.
Use the Teacher Interface in Cleartrack to enter transition assessment data. Include dates of interviews and results of surveys etc.
